Event summary

Cooley’s On the Record Rapid-Fire Series provides insights and analysis on commercial and contractual disputes – and the issues that drive them. The series addresses a range of topics, including class actions, crypto, product liability, and cross-border, life sciences and technology disputes.

Session 2 – English Crypto Litigation: The Cases So Far and the Key Issues To Be Resolved

Participants joined members of Cooley’s disputes team for a 30-minute rapid-fire webinar discussing some of the important crypto decisions made by the English courts so far and the key issues to be resolved. This is a rapidly developing area, with English courts at the forefront of grappling with the complex issues which have arisen. We consider cases concerning the tracing of stolen crypto assets and claims against crypto exchanges arising from the fraud of their customers, as well as the assertion in the Tulip Trading case that software developers owe fiduciary duties to help recover bitcoin which is inaccessible as a result of criminal activity – and the wider implications if this claim succeeds.
